PSV Eindhoven have asked about signing Manchester United winger Anthony Elanga on loan but Erik ten Hag is still reluctant to let players out.
The 20-year-old has started just seven games under Erik ten Hag this season, despite breaking into the first-team under Ralf Rangnick.
It has previously been reported that Elanga was becoming frustrated with his lack of game time – and the Swede was heavily linked with a loan move to Everton.

With Ten Hag still debating whether the young United star is in his plans, former Man United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy is open to the idea of bringing him to PSV on a loan deal.
Elanga has been used mainly as a late substitute with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Antony, Anthony Martial and even 18-year-old Alejandro Garnacho all ahead of him in the pecking order.
Van Nistelrooy has made it clear that he is looking to strengthen during the January window.
Speaking ahead of PSV’s match against Go Ahead Eagles, he said: ‘Of course I can’t name names, but we are working hard on it, because it is necessary.’
PSV have also made an offer for Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite, 20, who has impressed on loan at the Dutch club this season.
